Calling all Little Big Planeters
My name is David Hood, aka Defero Spiritus, I'm a Mastersstudent at the Royal College of Art, I'm relatively new in landing on LittleBig Planet, but am now designing a live service for little big planetinhabitants and need some eager volunteers to test and respond to the service.
But there is something in it for you too!! The service is designed and will provide you andanybody interested in this service with a level/ platform custom designedspecifically around them as individuals on little big planet and in the realworld.
All you need to do is fill in a questionnaire level online whichI will provide access to on your reply; this will help the service team designaspects of your own level. Finally to ensure that your level is a high qualityand specific platform experience to you, some research will be carried out onyour local real world area and community, to pull out some features and hiddentreasures relevant to you in your real world surroundings. To put new relevanceon your daily surroundings and how you experience and respond to them
As this service is only in its beta phase it's scope isonly within London so unfortunately for some, to which I apologize, the pilotservice will only be available within London the as this is were we are basedand were we would love our volunteers and their local areas to respond from.
Oh! One last thing, your personal level may take on some realworld requirements, within your community, hunting for treasure, completing puzzles,missions and generally being a Little Big Planeter in the real world.
If successful, this service will spread and function fully as anLBP socially entrepreneurial enterprise with a very real and virtual communityspirit!
Please do ask more questions or contact me if you are interestedin trialing the service.
Happy gaming my fellow LBPer's
Peace and Love

Apologies for the confusing explanation!!
In response to the questions, there is absolutely no age limit, it is open to anyone willing to trail the service, the service we provide is exactly about creating levels around people and their real world environments, and each individual persons level will be unique to them and only they can become the masters of that level as only they can discover the keys to success in it!
The other unique part of this gaming service and experience is that parts of the platform will be built in response to your local real world environment as well as to you as an individual.
In other words this will be were one of our design agents will create your level in relation to your local community and will implement,mini adventures, missions, tasks, passwords and clues all in the real world context for you to discover in order to help you progress through your very one individual virtual platform level.
This will bring to the gaming experience, a new sense of adventure, that offers a new perspective both on the gaming and on engaging with your local environment through the adventure and challenge of your level.
I hope that makes sense,
Please keep the questions coming
Peace and love

Even though we are talking about custom content, I think it would be a good idea to provide a sample level on what to expect in terms of design and quality.
Since you mention 'service' several times I suppose there is a price tag attached to this?

Don't worry there are 100% no price tags, this is a concept service that will eventually become a social enterprise run by and offered to gamers, and potentially funded externally to guarantee minimal cost to the customer.
At this stage we are looking for volunteers to test the service for free, to find the strengths and weaknesses within it and to improve it for customers for their benefit and enjoyment.
All that is required is to complete a live LBP questionnaire level, sit back and let our design agent create your personal level for your enjoyment and adventure.
Peace and love

You can sign up by sending me an email to; email@example.com, we can then get you on to the questionnaire, and we can get started with the local community research and the making of your personal level
Peace and love
